A FEW MORE PAGES

 Hello my Lovelies, back with a couple more pages, this is the back of the front cover, flat cardboard, I gessoed it, ran some masking tape trying to create a tree, funny shaped tree, then tissue, then more gesso. I rubbed some blue gelato around the outside, the sprayed some green gelato on top, used a fan brush to make some swiping strokes, some brown gelato on the tree, splotched some blue all over..
 I stamped that gorgeous stamp, twice, on tissue, cut it off to look like birds in the grass, I used a fine black pen to extend the grasses,
Edged the whole page in Tim's mowed lawn, the brown twig, then the Inca Gold...

 This page was the chipboard one, gessoed it then sprayed it with the blue gelato, used Tim's mowed lawn through sequin scrim, then stamped randomly with the script stamp that goes with the sanctuary set in black ink...
 I have a box set of cards made out of chip board, I gessoed it over  one a few times, I used a old piece of plastic table cloth, ran some modeling paste over it for this lovely pattern, sprayed it with the blue and green gelatos, rubbed Inca gold all over the raised spots and the edges...
 My little image, well I had stamped the image with gelatos on another  page, then cover the stamp with gesso and stamped it on another piece of card stock, colored it with gelatos and water, cut it out and glued a piece of cardboard behind, to make it sit up, lots of layers, I edged it with the Inca gold.. A little close up, you can see the texture from the gesso..
Using mixed media with the gelatos makes it a lot more fun, sorry
for Gelato-ing you to death, I have only one more page to create, I will be finished the book,  but a few more to show you.  Thanks for visiting and hope you have a wonderful day...
                                            NAMASTE!!!

I love what you did here, Dianne! You have used that stamp brilliantly, conveying the little birds in the grass at the foot of the tree, which I adore, by the way! The colours are fabulous on this! I am just so excited to know that you are getting fun out of what I sent and that you are using it along with the Gelatos to such gorgeous effect! Lots of excited wing flapping going on here in Magpieheaven!Lovely work! Julie Ann xx

Like Anne, I'm hooked on the tree - it definitely has an otherworldly feel to it - I get faeries, elves and all the hidden kingdoms of the natural world from it - it's magical!
